Interests: early diagnosis in cancer and neurodegenerative disorders by miRNAs detection; strategy both for diagnosis and therapy in order to efficaciously target the clinical disease and reduce the failure rate of pharmacological treatment
This Special Issue of Molecules "miRNAs as Probes to Monitor Cancer and Neurodegenerative Disorders" is devoted to outstanding research and review papers focused on new diagnostic methodology employing miRNAs detection. The aim is to set a miRNAs panel useful for a specific diagnosis of cancer and neurodegenerative onset. Moreover, these biomarkers could lead to therapeutic strategy plans for these pathologies that were reported as being the challenge for the scientific community over the next few years in the Horizon 2020 guidelines. We ask that authors contemplating submission of review papers provide a pre-submission inquiry to the guest editor with a brief outline of the proposed coverage.
